M. E. Hearn – “Lady Hawkeye”

“I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things.” ―J.R.R. Tolkien

I have loved stories for as long as I can remember. Long before I ever became a fan of Doctor Who, I travelled through time and space by way of my books rather than a police call box. My mother and father, my grandparents, aunt and uncles…everyone important in my life modeled the importance of a story well-told, whether it was in a novel or simply told around the kitchen table. As an adult, I continue to be fascinated by how the most powerful stories are those that sing anew the Old Songs, the legends of the time before time that inspire our souls to something greater than ourselves. And, as I begin a new project about a small group of ordinary people who suddenly find themselves fighting to prevent what might just be the actual Apocalypse, I hope to do the same.

Vivien Chase  – “Lady Foxcraft”

“If we listened to our intellect, we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business because we’d be cynical. Well, that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.” – Ray Bradbury

I have an outline to a short story that is the direct result of eavesdropping on a pair in Starbucks. I named them Grant and Sarah. I have been known to binge watch Too Cute on Animal Planet. I will always have a pet, probably multiple pets–probably all of them dogs. I rage quit Metroid: Prime when I was 19-years-old because the title villain kicked my sorry butt one too many times. Several years passed before I picked up that GameCube control and served that fell beast a delicious cold dish of revenge. Writing gives me a chance to understand reality. I am a karaoke rock star. My go-to jams: Total Eclipse of the Heart, Wanted Dead or Alive, Hotel California, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Where Does My Heart Beat Now. #IRegretNothing. My favorite Zelda game is actually two — Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. The first Zelda game I beat was A Link to the Past (after my mom beat it first). I have five different pairs of Converse All-Star shoes, and I feel that five is too few. I’m notorious for making iTunes playlists to coincide with a particular story, story section, or character. I consider making a playlist a part of my planning stage, right along with outlining. My parents bought me a piano when I was a kid. The first song that I learned to play by ear was the main melody of the theme to Jurassic Park.

Kandis Hebert – “Lady Dynamo”

“I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.” -Vincent van Gogh

I was the shy, dreamy little girl afraid to make a sound around most people. I always had a book or, even more likely, a notebook at hand. Stories let me escape the boredom of daily life or, sometimes, the hard things I wasn’t ready to face. I didn’t realize at first that the good stories aren’t an escape at all; the good ones show you truths and teach you lessons that you aren’t quite ready to face in real life. Perhaps that’s why I was so afraid to share my writing for so long–stories have a way of exposing things we may not always be ready to see–but now I’ve decided to take that leap. When I’m not writing I can usually be found at the game table throwing down spells or binge-watching shows usually of the Sci-Fi/Fantasy persuasion whilst knitting and drinking tea.
